Item description for Extragalactic Astronomy and Cosmology: An Introduction by Peter Schneider...

Starting with the description of our home galaxy the Milky Way, this cogently written textbook introduces the reader to the astronomy of galaxies, their structure, active galactic nuclei, evolution and large scale distribution. Then, from the extensive and thorough introduction to modern observational and theoretical cosmology, the text turns to the formation of structures and astronomical objects in the early universe. The basics of classical astronomy and stellar astrophysics needed for extragalactic astronomy are given in the appendix.In particular, Peter Schneider's Extragalactic Astronomy and Cosmology has the goal of imparting the fundamental knowledge of this fascinating subfield of astronomy, while leading readers to the forefront of astronomical research. But it seeks to accomplish this not only with extensive textual information and insights. In addition, the author's evident admiration for the workings of the universe that shines through the lines and the many supporting color illustrations will deeply inspire the reader.While this book has grown out of introductory university courses on astronomy and astrophysics, it will not only be appreciated by undergraduate students and lecturers. Through the comprehensive coverage of the field, even graduate students and researchers specializing in related fields will appreciate it as reliable reference.

Reviews - What do customers think about Extragalactic Astronomy and Cosmology: An Introduction?

Fantastic book  Apr 7, 2008
Can a textbook in cosmology really become a coffee-table book? In my house, yes, but then this book is really beautiful. The color photos are stunning, and there are enough of them to keep the topic very exciting, as if cosmology weren't rather awesome to begin with. Also many charts/diagrams, a bunch of formulas, and lots of highly informative text. If it sounds like I'm only looking at the pictures, though, I am not. I'm a physicist wanting to reacquaint myself with cosmology, which I enjoyed back in graduate school. The actual text is appropriate to a grad school audience, and it is quite thorough -- but not suitable to the general public.
